American singer-songwriter Ryan Adams has taken to social media to deny allegations of abuse made by five women.
The new report made by the New York Times details interviews by the women—which includes allegations by Adams’ ex-wife of ten years Mandy Moore—claims that Adams’ offered the chance for professional success as a way to control the women.
On top of that, details of an alleged inappropriate online relationship with a 14-year-old fan has also been detailed.
Now, Adams has taken to social media to enforce his denial of the accusations. “I am not a perfect man and I have made many mistakes. To anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally, I apologize deeply and unreservedly,” he began before adding: “But the picture that this article paints is upsettingly inaccurate.”
“Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false. I would never have inappropriate interactions with someone I was underage. Period. As someone who has always tried to spread joy through my music and my life, hearing that some people believe I caused them pain saddens me greatly. I am resolved to work to be the best man I can be. And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing.”
